According to the following tweets, the Harpers Choice Tuesday
Morning store is closing. As of this post, it may already have closed.
Have you ever been there? We used to love noodling around there before a
trip to Maiwand or Rita's. When Margo was little, it was a great source
for an inexpensive toy or a stuffed animal.
@ingloriousBOH: Per Tuesday Morning employees, @Kimcorealty's longstanding neglect of maintenance issues is why they...are closing. #ColumbiaMD
@ingloriousBOH: Easy to believe, if you've been to @KimcoRealty's
#HarpersChoice Village Center. The store has buckets all over the store
to catch leaks.
@ingloriousBOH: Maybe that's why stores and restaurants rarely rarely
start up in west #ColumbiaMD: @KimcoRealty owns WL/HC/HR, & runs
them like slum lords.
I don't know much about Kimco. But I do know that the Harpers Choice Tuesday
Morning has been plagued by leaks as long as I have been going there.
It's absolutely true about the buckets. It always struck me as odd that
a store in a Columbia Village Center would be in such bad shape.
I'm not an investigative reporter; I'm a curious community blogger. I know there must be more to this
story. But I do think it is too bad that the store is closing, because
it was a refreshing change from the usual village center fare. Bargain
hunters will move on to similar stores in strip malls like Ollie's, Big
Lots, Tuesday Morning...a loss for the Village Center model, indeed.
